Who's gonna be our State Rep?

Darling, Pasch, Wasserman

Back in August, I read in Milwaukee Magazine:

Sam Rowen, 31 is said to be pondering a run for the 22nd Assembly District seat being vacated by Democratic Rep. Sheldon Wasserman, who will attempt to unseat state Sen. Alberta Darling in 2008. Sam now works as legislative aide for Milwaukee Alderman Mike D'Amato.

But now .. the JS reported:

Milwaukee Ald. Mike D'Amato, who has represented the city's east side since 1996, will not seek re-election in April.  His departure sets up a scramble for a seat that covers one of the most politically active parts of the city. Already, five have filed to run, including D'Amato's aide, Sam McGovern-Rowen.

So .. Since Wasserman is running for State Senate vs. Alberta Darling .. and Rowen isn't running for Wasserman's seat .. who is?  

UPDATE: Ok, I did some Googling.  I've found two candidates:

Whitefish Bay's own Sandra Pasch .. Website: http://sandrapasch.com/

And Rosemary Ponik, from Brown Deer.  (No known website.)

 Both are Democrats.  No Republicans have registered to run for the 22nd district.
